Why I don’t really blog anything useful anymore.

You’ve probably noticed this website is mainly a personal finance diary these days. When I was a young and eager (ha!) blogger I did at times try to write useful articles about things that I felt were relevant. Like how to cut down utility bills, get out of debt and other general personal finance stuff.

I tried to jump into the PF blogging world more serious at times but it meant turning away from what this website is to me; personal, towards business. I’m an entrepreneur and I get great enjoyment out of streamlining and fixing and making things better but it never felt quite “right” to do that to this bloggityblog. I never felt genuine when I wrote general articles specifically for others to read. I like helping people but I prefer to do so more on a personal basis by talking to someone in the middle of the night with a beer in hand, rather than writing to the anonymous internet, I suppose.

I’ve stuck to this personal finance diary-type format for more than a year after writing this piece in January last year. I went through a really rough time in my life last spring  but since then a lot of things have  definitely changed, I am posting more but I don’t think I’ll ever continue on the big-blogger or businessy-blogger path. I think I’ll keep it as it is and I suppose I wanted to throw that out there and let you know because I somehow felt guilty about it. (Even though I really don’t have to) 🙂 Happy weekend!

  1. The fact you keep your blog personal is the reason I keep reading, plus its nice to hear a maritime perspective. I find the general pf community ‘articles’ to be getting a bit tired, much of it is common sense. I prefer to read the story behind the blogger. 🙂
